    Splints occur on the sides of the cannon, not the pastern. Do you have a picture?

    No, unfortunately, although I don't think it's really big enough to see from a picture. You wouldn't be able to tell its there just from looking; its a pretty small(maybe an inch diameter, shallow lump.

    Okay, so I'm being a total worry wort but this is my baby horse here.

    How long should I wait before testing the waters again? We soaked him twice a day for 2 1/2 days, and he is not limping anymore. Does that mean that the abscess is burst or just that the soaking is working, and keep it up?

    If he is not lame now and there is no heat in his legs for at least 24 hours, saddle up for a test ride and see what happens. Probably was an abscess and now it is drained. Next trim, you may find the exit track.

    If he comes up lame again, you should think about a vet.

    Well I just would like to let everyone know that we're all better :) Verrrry happy to see my boy trotting around in the field again without a care in the world! We did a short 10 min test ride walking around in the grass, and he never took a wrong step or limped.

    Extremely relieved and grateful for all your responses! Thanks
